Hey so it's #YogaSaturday and it is a little awkward...actually today's yoga pose is known as the "Awkward" pose! It is a beginner balancing pose that promotes overall body strength by opening up the pelvis, tones leg muscles, relieves menstrual cramps (for the ladies), improves flexibility in the toes and ankles, and good for sciatica and arthritis conditions.
Today's yoga pose is the Five Pointed Star. This is a standing beginner pose that both strengthens and lengthens the body, aligns the spine, and strengthens your legs, ankles, abdomen, and back.
Today's #yoga pose is the Reverse Table. This is a beginner level pose that involves creating an inverted U with your body, making the table. I lifted my head up here to see I was in good form, but usually you lay your head back with this pose. The Reverse Table strengthens your arms, wrists, and legs, while also stretches your shoulders, chest, and front ankles.
Today's #yoga pose is called the Goddess. This is a beginner pose that involves having your feet wide apart and bending your knees as well as lowering into a squat. The #Goddess pose strengthens your glutes, hips, thighs, calves, and ankles (basically your lower body). Also opens the hips and the chest as well as elongates the spine.
Today's yoga pose is called Balancing the Cat. It involves extending the arm and leg from the same side while maintaining balance. This pose stretches the extended arm and leg, while also strengthens the hips and shoulders and improves flexibility and balance.
Today's yoga pose is the Downward Dog! This pose has the following benefits:
Calms the brain and helps relieve stress and mild depression
Energizes the body
Stretches the shoulders, hamstrings, calves, arches, and hands
Strengthens the arms and legs
Helps relieve the symptoms of menopause
Relieves menstrual discomfort when done with head supported

When I started doing this pose I wasn't able to keep my feet flat on the floor, but after repetition and my body strengthening it is getting a lot better! 💪💪💪
Today's yoga pose is the Cat-Cow pose. It is a gentle flow between two poses that both warms the body and brings flexibility to the spine. The Cat-Cow pose stretches the back torso and neck, as well as strengthens the abdominal organs. This pose brings postural awareness and balance throughout the body
